I still miss Maldives and Palm beach! I have been in Maldives three times and so far Palm Beach is the best resort I visited. Nice rooms, the usual fantastic beaches and really great Italian food. It is only a pity to see a little part of the island eroded by water with bungalows almost falling down...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your detailed review, your opinion is well appreciated and very important to us! For the same reason, I would like to clarify one important aspect of it: It is true indeed that the local name of our beautiful island is "mosquito island", that's why we are very attentive to carry out a pest...

We stayed at Palm Beach over New Year for 1 1/2 weeks (booked with Thomas Cook). We were very pleased with the overall service, quality of food, size/layout/style of our villa (sunrise side). You can walk pretty much all around the island (2km long) on wonderful white sand. The island is run by an Italian company which explains the focus... More

Dear Caribbean, thank you so much for writing such a nice, simple and helpful review. We are very happy to know that you appreciated our Italian style at the Maldives. And yes, you are right, the Italian imprinting is pretty much everywhere, from the staff, to the Main Restaurant ending with our revisited afternoon Tea Time. But, as you pointed... More

We just arrived back from Palm Beach Resort, maldives. We are huge maldives fans, have been there for 3 times, and we choosed this island for many reasons: - as far as I knew it has italian owners, and however we are hungarian, but we love everything which is from Italy (food, style, fashion, etc.) - its dimensions (we travelled...

We came here for two weeks in November, exactly five years after our first visit. We had a great time here in 2009, and the same again this year. We can't quite understand the recent British reviewers who have complained about this being an Italian dominated resort. Didn't they read earlier Tripadvisor reviews? Yes, there are lots of Italian visitors... More

This was our first trip to the Maldives, where we decided to go for our honeymoon. We loved the experience and will for sure be back but NOT at the Palm Beach Resort. This resort, as it has been said before, is way too focused on Italians. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Italians... but everything in this... More

Although the Maldives are fantastic, I would not re-visit this 'Palm beach Resort again I'm afraid & why? Well, firstly the pricing structure. In particular water in rooms & room tea & coffee are chargeable, which for what you pay to visit the Maldives is atrocious. 2. Main restaurant 'cuisine'. Not international, but geared toward Italian eating & repetitive. The... More

This island isn't pushed a great deal by UK travel companies but I think it's a bit of a hidden gem. The house reef isn't the best or accessible from the beach but there are complimentary boat trips to nearby reefs twice a day for those who need their snorkelling fix. The island itself is very natural and has a... More

Just spent two weeks at this resort (two adults and our 4-year old child). The island is very nice with gorgeous vegetation and sandy beaches. The sunset side is open ocean while the sunrise is shallow water (better for children).
